Scott Dadich has been named the new editor of Wired magazine, replacing Chris Anderson, who resigned earlier this month.

Lucia Moses of Adweek writes, “Dadich served as creative director for Wired from 2006 to 2010, where he notably led the magazine to three consecutive National Magazine Awards for design. After developing Wired’s widely praised iPad edition, he was tapped in 2010 for the larger corporate role of vice president of editorial platforms and design.

“Dadich’s appointment was announced in an email by Condé Nast CEO Chuck Townsend. Company president Bob Sauerberg happened to be in San Francisco, where Wired has its editorial base, and was on hand for the announcement, as was Wired vp and publisher Howard Mittman and outgoing editor Chris Anderson.

“‘He’s been pivotal in helping Condé Nast win a leadership position in the industry,’ said Tom Wallace, editorial director for Condé Nast, who led the search. ‘Wired we think of as the first word on the future, and to a very large degree, Wired’s future will have a profound influence on Condé Nast’s future. It is the largest website, it is where we launched the digital strategy, it has the biggest digital circulation.’”
